Professional Liability Claims

Professional liability claims involving deficiencies in architectural design or engineering can arise at any time during the life of a construction project.

These design defects can have a devastating impact on construction projects, causing serious schedule delays, disruptions, and significant cost overruns.

When design claims arise against architects or engineers, Rimkus is called upon to conduct an in-depth examination to evaluate the facts at issue.

Rimkus thoroughly inspects the construction documents, drawings, product and material specifications, building systems, and regulatory requirements.  The construction means and methods as well as life safety are also examined in order to deliver a comprehensive assessment of any deficiencies in design, construction, products, or materials.

Based on a comprehensive assessment, our consulting experts form decisive opinions and conclusions as to the origin and cause of any deficiencies and their economic impacts.
